Redesigning Joomla!

Redesigning Joomla!

Joomla! 1.6 stable is right around the corner. With it comes an administrator interface that although significantly updated, remains largely the same as the previous interface from Joomla! 1.5. The Joomla! 1.5 admin interface was an updated version of the original Joomla! 1.0 interface, which was inherited from Mambo. One could say that we're using an interface that's been around the better part of this decade. That's an eternity in software.

The prefix has nothing to do with telephony

The prefix has nothing to do with telephony

When dealing with website security, most web masters think only about fending off potential attacks. However, we are all human. No matter how hard we try, some of the attacks will make it through, and hit our site. Our concern should be making sure that these attacks never cause any real harm to our site. We'll start covering our bases from... the database! In this issue we'll see some working, real-world examples of security measures based on that concept, which take a minimal amount of time and skills to apply to your own site. But, first, what has the database to do with security and your site surviving hacking attempts anyway?

Sync Joomla! websites with MAMP and Dropbox on your Macs

If you’re anything like me, the confines of 4 walls is unpalatable. So you opt for working at the local coffee shop, book store or even the beach where there are signs of life other than your own pulse. But how can we do that when our work is so dependent on having an internet connection? Simple. With a couple of Macs, three apps and about an hour, you can cut the cord — the Ethernet cord that is.

Doctoring Joomla!

Doctoring Joomla!

In an exam room with my doctor, I tell him, “It hurts when I snap my fingers this way.” My doctor replies, “stop snapping your fingers that way.” Ah, yes the obvious. Jokes aside, intelligent people, like doctors, break down hard problems into simple steps that don't seem obvious at first. I then proceed to ask him, “I think I need a second opinion, can your system just send over my records?” My doctor looks puzzled. I think to myself, “All those years of medical school and he doesn't know how to send over my records?” Where has the intelligence gone?
